If you follow me on social media, then you know that I was recently in New York. I was invited out by Lane Bryant for a blogger discussion. More on that to come later. But, during this meeting I had a chance to sit at a table with LB President and CEO Linda Heasley. We talked about a lot of things, including a discussion about styling flare jeans. Funny thing was, I actually had a post drafted before I left for this trip. This was just a sign that I had to follow through and write about the latest denim trend.
As any denim lover knows, we take the style of our jeans very seriously. Most of the time, we stick with that one style that not only looks good, but fits great. Over the past few years, I’ve stuck with the same skinny jean silhouette in a dark wash. That’s just what I’m drawn to. So, when Target challenged me to a different kind of denim hack, like trying a few AVA + VIV denim styles I wouldn’t normally buy—I was a little uneasy.
Shout out to Helena, a fellow blogger over at PinkGuayoyo.com for inspiring this post. She asked me on Twitter what some of my favorite plus-size skinny jeans were. Then I realized, this is not the first time someone one has asked me that question. So, I set out to do a little research and see what the internet had to offer us in the skinny jean department.
For about a millisecond, I considered creating a blog where all I do is write about my love for denim jeans. I wear them all of the time and then some. They’re just my favorite of all-time favorites. A little obsessed. In fact, I decided to share 10 plus size denim jeans that have caught my eye at the moment.
Would you believe me if I told you that I’ve been dreaming of a pair of high-waisted denim? Well…I have. I know it’s kind of weird, but I practically live in denim. Day in and out. But, I’ve always struggled with the low rise factor. It’s so annoying. Then one day City Chic sent me a pair.
I’m sitting here sick in bed with my laptop and a box of tissues. Sneezing every few minutes, but online window shopping at the same time. It’s a talent. I swear. I keep running across these great denim pieces that I want. In all my stuffiness, I’ve realized that I want a lot of things. Hence…my denim wish list.
I love the smell of football in the air. If you didn’t already know I’m a huge sports fan. Nevermind the fact that my Denver Broncos didn’t make it. I don’t want to talk about it. Moving on…tomorrow is the “everything” of football-the Super Bowl. The Baltimore Ravens will take on the San Francisco 49ers, but here’s the important question…what are you going to wear?
